At Empire Coachbuilders we are proud of the aftersales services we offer. When customers need running repairs or something more major to their horse boxes, we want them to feel that they are welcome to contact us at anytime to help them. To that end, Empire has invested in a Customer Support Vehicle and on its first outing we decided to take a photo of the moment!
We are pleased to welcome Christopher Padfield to the Empire family. Christopher and his wife are major hunting enthusiasts. Hunting with two packs one in Essex where they live, where Christopher is a hunt master, and one in Lincolnshire which Christopher hunts with regularly. When the Padfield’s came to meet us he had already visited many of the other manufacturers in the UK. Having been recommended to speak to us by one of his friends, Christopher made the long journey across the UK from his home in Essex to speak to our Salesman James early on a Saturday morning.
Having understood Chris’s requirements where other manufacturers had failed, due to James’ personal knowledge of horses and what a hunting box needed to be; Christopher’s search for a horsebox manufacturer came to a halt. James quickly set about searching for a chassis for Christopher and his wife. Having built them the lorry of their dreams, Kevin Jackson the founder of Empire decided that James could deliver the Padfield’s Empire Platinum to their home himself. This was the first time Kevin, who usually likes to do the hand over himself, has let this take place. James made sure he took the time to show them how everything worked. Making sure the Padfield’s felt part of the Empire family and finally celebrating the delivery with a glass of champagne.
